Authpack

Package of distributed client and server OAuth2 API's

Under development!!! By far not stable yet!!!

TODO:

  • Implement more tests, check latest OAuth2 draft and compare to current implementation
  • Add more documentation
  • Add example(s)
  • Add OpenId connect implementation
  • Add client implementations (javascript server, browser, maybe others)

What is Authpack?

Authpack is an open-source project that uses User Agents (i.e. browsers), node.js and Open Source Packages to implement the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Protocol as defined by the IETF. Later also OpenID Connect will be added.

How does it work?

TODO

Where can I run Authpack?

Authpack can be used as Authentication and Authorization building block for client and server applications.

Get Authpack from NPM with:

npm install authpack

Or get Authpack from GitHub and then install the start scripts and all needed packages with:

User Documentation

Authpack user documentation is still very much a work in progress. We'll be actively updating the documentation in the upcoming months to make it easier to get acclimated with Authpack.
